The site of the continent's first Spanish colony, Cartagena retains much of its colonial flavor thanks to a World Heritage-listed old town, encircled by old walls and protected by imposing fortresses.
We've included these beaches for you: Playa Puntilla and Playa de Bocagrande. Popular historic sites such as Barrio Getsemani and Templo de Santo Domingo are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Cartagena: Aviario Nacional de Colombia (in Isla Baru), Puerto Colombia (Mormon Temple & Castillo de Salgar) and Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion (in Barranquilla). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Centro Historico, admire the landmark architecture of St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia de Santo Toribio, and appreciate the history behind La Gorda Gertrudis.

If you are flying in from Chile, the closest major airports are Rafael Nuñez International Airport and Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport. In February in Cartagena, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
